This article describes how to set up and publish SD Card courses to sell to learners offline.
Graphy, being a course platform, supports all the types of courses that your learners might be interested in.
While the most popular one is "Normal Courses", our platform also supports "SD Card Courses."
In SD Card Course, the content is uploaded the same way as "Normal Courses". However, it gets shipped as an encrypted ZIP file to separate SD Cards. This course type only works in Android-based mobile devices and Tablets.
SD Card Courses are suitable for those institutes who want to sell offline courses to learners.
Even though most of the features are same on all the types of Courses, here are the important points to be noted about SD Card Courses:
- Once you have published SD Card Courses, it can’t be edited. However, you can preview them anytime.
- Since SD Card Courses is about selling courses offline, it doesn't offer a Live Class, Live Test or Assignment feature.
